Does anyone know whether any of the examination facilities would be
suitable?  (Were it Oxford we were discussing, I'd have suggested the
Examination Schools for a choice of large flat rooms - I've attended a
conference there before.)

In particular:
  The large or small examination halls, New Museums site?

Even Wesley Church is central and has a large and flat space IIRC
(and would probably have the advantage of being cheap to hire,
though we may well have to arrange our internet access & catering etc.
